Entrepreneurship Concentration

Are you someone who can see "the whole picture" and think creatively about problem solving? Are you willing to take calculated risks to improve the world around you? Do you envision a business venture that you could uniquely call your own? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then a concentration in entrepreneurship is where you need to be.

The entrepreneurship concentration gives students the opportunity to study the process of business creation while honing the skills needed for success. The goal is to provide an "insider's" understanding of the entrepreneurial process and to help you think creatively across the business spectrum. Small companies create nearly 70 percent of the new jobs in the U.S., and in South Carolina nearly 80 percent of businesses have 19 or fewer employees. This is the dynamic business environment for which the entrepreneurship concentration is excellent preparation.

These skills are taught through coursework, direct contact with leading entrepreneurs and professors and extracurricular experiences offered through the student organization, ENACTUS.

Entrepreneurship Concentration Requirements
The entrepreneurship concentration requires two core courses, Principles of Entrepreneurship (ENTR 320) and New Venture Planning (ENTR 321), with additional electives available to complete the 18-hours of study.

For more details and academic requirements, please contact the Department of Management and Marketing.
